I see her posts.- not lengthy- mostly responses to other posts during the school day. All about personal things, people looking for recommendations, mazel tovs etc.
It bothers me a bit even though I think she is a great teacher. But, shouldnt she be teaching the kids. I can see the time. Its not during rest time. How would you feel?

I wouldn’t feel great about it. I would rather she keep a close eye on my child then her phone.

Today’s reality makes it unlikely. If you say something she may stop posting but unlikely stop her screen time. All you will accomplish is her annoyance with you and the risk that t may transfer to your child.

Definitely hear your valid concern unfortunately our attention to social media has gotten way out of hand.... but a Morah being on the phone while on duty in my personal opinion has crossed a major line

Hopefully it is during her break time?
I would speak to the director about it

It's pretty common. If you don't like it, move your child.
She won't stop if you say something - she'll just hide it better.

Is this play group in her house or an institutional type place where the teachers get breaks?

If its the first, I would be concerned if its second I would be dan l chaf zchus that shes not neglecting the kids shes in the bathroom or getting a drink or taking a 5 min whatever.

Schools should have a policy about shutting phones or keeping it in a drop off box

It makes no difference to me. I've worked in both and both can hold abuse.
Have you been following the past few thread on this topic?
There's little difference between them.

It's a nice thought. You can share it with the school - but unless its your school - you can't force change.

In many places there are no-phones allowed rules.

I think the difference she meant was not how professional they are but rather if the Morah has breaks.

I am a playgroup Morah in my house (yes all 12 of my kids are napping now) but all my mothers know that though they can text me not during nap time I will not be able to respond until the kids are sleeping. When I'm on duty there is no break. If I need the bathroom I wait till it's a decent time and I fly. My assistant and I both have break time if the kids are sleeping during nap time.

However, I've worked in a center before and because there was a lot more staff each teacher was given a break in addition to nap time. They had floaters come into the classroom during that time. That's the difference.
